Microwave imaging provides the solution to detect the cancer across the globe using utilizing the antenna design for medical and Internet of things. Breast tumor is one of the majority identically occurring cancers found in females. It results in death, if not initially diagnosed. Existing breast cancer detection techniques are not efficient to detect the breast cancer in its former phase. As per the world health organization in 2018, 2.09 million peoples were diagnosed and 627,000 deaths were reported due to the breast tumor. The endurance rate for the patients diagnosed with breast cancer is 66% in India and in 2018, 162,468 breast cancer new cases were covered as per the Cancer India organization. In this study, hexagonal T-slot micro strip antenna, operating at 1.75 and 4.04 GHz, is simulated to spot the breast tumor. The scanning antenna generates a real-time multiple data, which makes it easy for a physician to identify the breast cancer in an early phase of development. Simulation results such as current density, yield loss, electric field, gain, radiation pattern are analyzed and investigated for breast tumor and normal breast tissue.
